The Verbum Dei Missionary Fraternity (VDMF) is a Catholic contemplative-active community founded in 1963 by Rev. Jaime Bonet in Mallorca, Spain. As a pontifically approved Institute of Consecrated Life, the community is present in 37 countries dedicated to prayer and preaching of the Word.
One of the aspects that makes the Verbum Dei a new form of consecrated life, is that it is one community with three branches. Jaime saw that the members of the community in their life as disciples must follow Jesus, living and integrating the oneness into the call to mission. “May they all be one” (John 17:21) and “go and make disciples of all peoples” (Matthew 28:19):
